in 2002, the kid, and basically we believe that america has a responsibility to be involved in the world in protection of our values and our strategic interests, all of which helps us be safer and freer here at home and it's just grown. >> senator graham, what is the secret to proper bipartisanship, do you think? >> well, in fairness to our colleagues, pierce, there's a lot of real close friendships around this place. there's a lot of republicans and democrat who get along very well and work together. the reason you're talking about the three of us, i think, is because of 9/11. there had never been an attack on america, we would have been three friends who travel and socialize, but what brought us together and put us on the map, after we were attacked on 9/11, everything in our country changed and throughout the world. as a result of 9/11 and all the national security issues that followed, our friendship became a cause. it really did solidify over the iraq war. bipartisanship as hyped is being willing to lose your job. i really admire john because he suffered for our country. and i hang
that have made america a beacon of hope and freedom. many yearn for basic human liberties. the people of western sa harrah have been trapped in oppressive conditions under the puppet regime. the front has instituted masked kidnappings of people from their homes into western algeria. they have been in prison in camps for 35 years. the front colbrates with the likes of cuba who ration food in the camp and indoctor rin ate children while partnering with al qaeda. they have a plan, which i will submit for the record that addresses these issues with a clear and democratic solution to the sa harrah crisis. this is where america support should lie. mr. speaker, the united states can and must continue to advance fundamental human rights as we in this chamber continue to work together for peace, justice and human dignity in the western sahara. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. are there further requests for one-minute speeches? the house will be in order. members and staff, remove your conversations off the floor. under the speaker's announced policy o
of america. every time you come to this floor it's a question, why are we here? we are here to do the people's work. let's sit down. get it done. and move forward. instead of filling the agenda however worthy some of those initiatives may be, instead of not along with passing a middle income tax -- this is also reminiscent of a year ago. the president proposed, the house and senate, democrats and republicans, voted for the payroll tax holiday. the republicans in the house resisted. painted themselves into a corner until they had no choice. the issue had been made too hot for them to handle and they finally had to come around to supporting the payroll tax holiday. and here we are again. 100% of the american people will receive a tax cut when we pass the middle income tax cut. the wealthiest people in our country will receive a tax cut up to their income of $250,000. we are asking them to pay a little bit more for what they make over $250,000 a year. to help reduce the deficit, to help grow the economy, grow the economy. that growth is what is essential. you want to reduce the deficit, create
has been so much a part of america's history, which is our willingness to invest in the future. that investment is in our children, all children, including poor children, and modern infrastructure, in research, blue sky research. and i think that is, when we get beyond the challenge we face over these next two weeks, i think that's going to be a broader challenge we're going to face. >> we have time for one more question, over here. i just want to say how much support the president has on ensuring fair balance and -- [inaudible] >> richard with trust met andy. so we are basically a biomedical company that helps doctors collaborate better using social media. and i want to ask a question about crossing the valley of death. so our company is very fortunate that we got a small amount of innovation funding from health care their monies. but it's really a broader questions about the health care ecosystem. in silicon valley a company goes under, software engineers find new jobs in a matter of weeks. but in biotech we have people, a lot of people with ph.d's and they are much more long
america anchor and former traveling press secretary for the obama campaign jen socky. this is the speed of the fiscal cliff negotiations. blink and you just might miss exactly nothing. while talks between speaker boehner and president obama over the past three days have been shrouded in secrecy, we've learned there have been two offers put on the table. the white house sent boehner a proposal on monday calling for $1.4 trillion in tax revenue, $200 billion less than the original offer. might that seal the deal? >> the president's called for $1.4 trillion worth of revenue. that cannot pass the house or the senate. >> okay then. the speaker's office responded with a deal of its own. yesterday it included precisely the same amount of revenue from the original proposal, $800 billion, which indicates there may have been concessions else where. a democratic source close to the white house tells nbc news the proposal included a permanent extension of the bush tax cuts. that is highly unlikely to fly, given the hard line the president has taken on tax rates and what he told barbara walters in a
the country and this is sure to send shockwaves across america as people absorb yet another shooting rampage. david wright, abc news, los angeles. >> as david just said, this is the latest in a string of multiple shootings, including the aurora, colorado, movie massacre shooting and the sikh temple and the day spa shootings in wisconsin and right now as we speak, gun sales are set issing records in america. almost 16.5 million background checks were done last year. less than one half of 1% were denied. this country has almost 130,000 federally licensed firearms dealers. more places in america to buy guns than to get gas, groceries or a big mac at mcdonald's. on top of that, almost 48,000 people in america were murdered with guns between 2006 and 2010. that's a lot of numbers. listen to this one. according to the atf, in 2010, there were 5.4 million new firearms manufactured in the u.s. nearly all for the u.s. market and this year 3.2 million were imported to the u.s., nearly 8.5 million new firearms on the streets of america in one year. think about that. >> and if you think about how many p
people. it's just a show of support. it is does not mean america will arm rebel forces. president obama talked about why the decision was made right now. >> the syrian opposition coalition is now inclusive enough. reflective and representative enough of the syrian population, that we consider them the legitimate representative of the syrian people in the asass regime. >>> hugo chavez, recovering from six hours of surgery in cuba this morning. the fourth cancer-related operation for the venezuelan president since the summer of 2011. his vice president tells the people of venezuela the procedure on chavez was complex and completed correctly and successfully. >>> so michigan, the cradle of the organized labor movement is now a right to work state. last night, michigan governor rick snyder kept his word and signed the controversial legislation into law, despite thousands of protesters. >> this is an area where obviously people disagree. but i'm confident this is in the best interest of michiganders. this will lead to more and better jobs. >> the legislation means public and private sector w

't want a deal if it is just the same old deal that is not good for america. neil: do you worry, as i guy has been around the neck of the woods for a few years, that republicans are losing their verve. some more conservative members ve said we lost an election but we did not los everything that we stand for, yet, everything i hear talked about, are concessions on part of the republicans about revenues, but not so much about spending cuts, where does that put us. >> if we lose our core prciple, reigning in spending and creating, be the job creators we'll lose our way the republicans. neil: you don't see the makings of a deal? we're tries to get a sense of the structure right now. you have to have the broad outline of the deal within a couple of days, anything later, gets to belongisticly -- logistically impossible to be done by the end of the year. >> i think you are right oif there is an agreement, it will take days to work it through, details. neil: you know. republicans get blame, if we tall off this cff. do you agree with that? >> i'm not sure. i think if we tal fall off the f that is

depression. i am thinking how much we had to pull the belt then. i think that if america would wake up and see that we do have to, the first thing that we have to do as citizens is stop spending. if the government would abide by the things that we did during the depression, neighbors helping neighbors, i want to continue with -- fortunately, my husband and i made plans, even though he started give it -- getting social security in 1936 when i was in grade school, we both worked, of course, and we paid into it. so, i do not know that anyone needs to give up anything, if the government would just cut the spending and use the taxes that we give them fiscally. that is all i have to say. host: let me ask you this. we are looking at stories in the news this morning about compromise and stories on the table. as republicans look to democrats and democrats look to republicans to give something up, should the american people be asked to give up something? caller code probably so, but it is so needless when i think over the years about how much -- we did not have a lot of money. we did not have cr
been reports on the voice of america that an iranian team of scientists have been seen recently, in recent days in north korea. so there is questions about the relationship between, and any help that may have been provided to the north koreans by the iranians. clearly the north koreans are very proud of this long range ballistic missile launch. the one in april failed miserably. and for the first time then they admitted that it did fail publicly. this time they extended the window and did not invite foreign journalists to watch this and simply announced when it was successful. they didn't want to take a chance of it failing again. the north koreans trying to time this to coincide with the death of their, their leader a year ago, and so that's why they're carrying this out this week. it is an attention-geting exercise. most u.s. officials believe. the pentagon has been notably silent in reaction to the launch last night, jenna. jenna: it has certainly gotten a lot of our attention and we'll be talking about it today. jennifer, thank you. >> reporter: thank you very much. jon: for

the 24th state in america with a right-to-work law. despite protests of angry union supporters, state lawmakers passed the legislation. this means both private and public workers do not have to pay union fees. and republican governor rick snyder quickly signed the bills, calling them "pro worker" and "pro michigan," but opponents say the move weakens organized labor and will mean lower wages. >>> last night on "politics nation," democratic congressman gary peters of michigan told the reverend al sharpton that governor snyder did an about face on this issue. take a listen. >> it is particularly hard to explain, because we had a governor who repeatedly said that this was not on his agenda, this would be very divisive for our state. he continually said that for a couple years, and then immediately after the election had a really sharp about-face and then just jammed it through without, as you mentioned, without any hearings or public input. i was able to meet with him with other members of the congressional delegation. he sat and listened to us, but he never really responded, and when he
